one way to improve the Tree Sts is to make these slumlords accountable for their properties. I live on Walnut St, on the S Side of Kinsley...my landlord keeps our property up, does repairs etc..we have a lot of nice homes on our end of the street, but we also have a lot of bldgs that are in need of repair, that make the rest of our street look bad. Seems the owners are just interested in collecting rents and not bothering with the upkeep of their properties. I see this all along the tree streets. Make them clean up/fix their properties, that would go a long way in improving the looks of this area.

I agree. You also have a lot of lazy people who love to throw their McDonald's bags, beer cans and bottles, and trash out the window. They do it right in front of you like nothing! The sh$$ box low rider cars love to race side by side down our roads too. My daughter and I were almost killed by 2 cars on the pine st corner where the two stop signs are. They were put there to slow people down because of all the accidents that were happening. Kids that walk around at night are pretty fresh too. Not all of them. I had three outside my yard one night swearing and yelling then continued to smash a bottle right in front of me. Followed to the parents house and the mom gave no care. Scumbags

Need more patrols. Police are doing good job with crime but buildings are dumpy in some parts as are the riff raff I wouldn't walk down half the streets without my dog or pistol. It's pretty sad. A lot of people congregate pretty early in the am and afternoon and are usually there til nightfall drinking cheep booZe hiding it on their stoops. Must be nice! To clean the neighborhoods up the people need to help or be cleaned up and or out as well!

"Police are doing good job with crime but buildings
are dumpy in some parts as are the riff raff I
wouldn't walk down half the streets without my dog
or pistol."
This statement contradicts itself. If the police are
doing a good job with crime then, why would you
need to carry a pistol? Sounds to me like you are
better off staying in "south Nashua" in order to stay
safe and out of jail. The tree streets do have a lot of
problems. Most of the issues are caused by people
from "other parts of town" or other Towns all
together. People shouldn't come to our
neighborhood looking for trouble. Because of the
issues here with the wanna be gangs and a few
people, the tree street neighborhood has a bad
reputation. The truth is that most if the people here
are hard working individuals who go to work every
day to try to make a better life for they're family.
We don't need trouble makers coming here and
starting with us in or own back yards.
The police could do a better job if these
"disenfranchised individuals "would just stay out. As far as the Slumlords go, you have those In every
corner of the city. The south end too. Why not
mention them?

Lets get the illegal immigrants out of our community and our collective pocket books.

Reduce welfare roles 15% a year. force these woman to get one of the many jobs Obama claims he created.

Go through the tree streets get the drugs and guns off the streets.

Don't you mean drugs and illegal guns?
Drugs and illegal guns are not limited to the tree streets . They are every where you go

Karl I think you need to read the paper or watch the news. Tree streets are getting worse. All of nashua is getting worse. Would you walk the streets at night by yourself and defenseless?

I totally agree Karl...yes, a lot of the problems in the Tree sts are caused by people coming from other neighborhoods, especially the south end......I've lived here 8 yrs, and most of the people in this neighborhood work two and three jobs....I always walked my dog thru the neighborhood, never had a problem..of course, he was a pitbull, gentle as a lamb, but people never bothered me. The Tree sts do have a bad rep......because of a few bad apples..and yes, there are slumlords all over the city.....I looked into some of the owners of these bldgs., most of them have Hollis addresses...sitting home collecting outrageous rents, not keeping up their properties, and they'll rent to anyone. Now we all know if you live in Hollis, you probably have money and then some. I still think the city should take these landlords to task, make them clean up their properties, and if their tenants can't help maintain them, then kick them out. Growing up in Nashua, the Tree Sts were originally made up of Canadian French people...and there still are a lot of French people who live here....but the neighborhoods have become more diverse...I've noticed in my neighborhood that the people hanging out in the am, doing nothing, drinking beers, whatever, are white. Not of Latino descent as most people think. We do have a lot of police patrols, at least at my end of Walnut St....I've had one incidence of vandalism since I've lived here, and it was very recent. A kid put a centerblock thru my driver's side window, just for giggles I guess, since they didn't steal anything. They found the kid..was he from the tree sts? No, he wasn't. He was from the south end. Can't raise hell in his neighborhood so I guess he figured he come to ours to do it.

Force these "women" to get out and get jobs?????? You don't have a clue who lives here, do you? I'm sure there are a lot of people on welfare, but you make it sound like everyone who lives here is a welfare mom and that's just not the case. As for the drugs and guns, trust me, they are everywhere, not just on the tree sts.....As I said in an earlier post, I've lived here for 8 yrs, have gotten to know the neighborhood pretty well...it's my experience that most of the latinos' in this neighborhood work two and three jobs! It's the white trash that do nothing......and you need to learn a little bit more about the welfare system before you criticize....Once on welfare, they make it almost impossible to get off....because on welfare, these "women" make more money than they would if they got a job, considering the low wages in this state. Wonder if you could live on the min wage? I know I make $16/hr and still have a hard time making ends meet.

The police should be better since there are so many of them,
Yes, i would walk the streets at any time of day. Some people shouldn't, but i have no problem with it. I can take care of myself though. Im not saying that the streets are safe. All i am saying is that most of the issues involve people that do not live in the tree streets neighborhood.

I live on pine st and I'm not a scumbag or druggie, etc. I work 40 plus hours a week and don't rely on any gov help. My neighbors are all working folks as well. There are good people and some decent parts. We should do something to lessen the crime and cleanup a lot of the area though.
